      Sounds like the new TV is going to be massively expensive, it'll be interesting to see the price, bearing in mind they struggled to sell the CZ (judging by the crazy discounts offered at some dealers).

      Disappointed that there's still no sign of a Panny OLED for "the masses", ie 50 inches and not outrageously expensive. Always loved Panasonic TVs but a flagship 65 incher is going to be well outside my budget.

      The new BD players sound interesting, I'm guessing they'll be cheaper than the current two.

      Any idea if this can be wall mounted?

      Looking at the soundbar, it doesn't look like it can be swung up like the LG Signature etc.

      Thanks,

      Bob

      I'm sure it will be wall mountable but we'll check with Panasonic.

      I expect pricing to be in line with LG's flagship 2017 OLED TV.

      Maybe. But I think we're a few years off having OLEDs that can get anywhere near full HDR brightness levels for anything over a few percent of the screen. They will no doubt have the best SDR picture you can imagine, but personally, I think purchasing a top of the range TV this year will folly for anyone who doesn't wipe their ass with £50 notes.

      Lovely green status LED still alive and kicking I see. This would make it an instant no-buy, even if I had the money. It always makes me laugh when I see they never show it in marketing shots though. Didn't follow Panasonic at all in 2016, but in 2015 they removed it completely with Photoshop. Had the 50CX704 very briefly and, apart from the pink tint on parts of the panel, that green LED in the bottom left annoyed me to no end. I'm still baffled that they continue to insist a TV needs a glowing green light to indicate operation. Especially with OLED, where you're expected to use it in a pitch black room to really reap the benefits of the technology.

      I didn't quite hear everything about the soundbar as I'm at work. I heard him say that it has 14 speakers. Is it Atmos compatible with a separate sub or anything?

      The soundbar doesn't support Atmos and there's no separate subwoofer either.

      No Dolby Vision announced as of yet. So probably not.

      I did ask about that and they said there might be at a later date, although they are obviously dependent on LG Display providing them with smaller screen sizes and although LG Display and LG Electronics are run as separate companies, I suspect LGE get priority over other manufacturers.

      No 3D.... no thanks. Like many others here I have spent quite a few bob on 3D blu-rays, my latest was "The Martian" at "cex" for £7 yesterday, a good price as its just popped back up to a tenner today. My present display is the venerable Panny VT30 so it will be quite some time yet before it gets replaced as it's only five years old. But all this "no 3D" capability is annoying me as it will possibly make all those BD's eventually redundant. :censored:

      By the way what's all this business with people (Glenn Zanoni) saying the letter "H" as hache, that really gets on my preverbials. :confused:

      I was surprised that Sony has jumped on board the Dolby Vision wagon, I think Panasonic has made a big mistake not coming on board as well with a top spec set in 2017 at a price I'm sure will make many sweat. I wasn't expecting DV to take off when only LG sets had initial support, but the tables have turned it seems.

      Philips, Loewe and Sony have sourced smaller OLED panels from LGD.

      Versus the competition, one OLED model in one size seems like a minimal effort.

      Okay, this is probably a stupid question but what is the footage at around 1:45? It's a woman in a space suit running with loads of carefully choreographed slo-mo explosions going off. Looks great!

      Got a CZ952 and loving it so am not bothered with anything else, just TV content now, hence the question.

      Thanks!
